Charles Brownstein is the Executive Director of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund in Portland, Oregon. Comic books and graphic novels have been under attack by would-be censors for decades.
In the 1950s, Congressional committees looked at comics as the major cause of juvenile delinquency which led to the creation of the "Comics Code", an industry group that effectively self-censored materials.  T
Today, schools are sometimes objecting to students bringing the popular "The Walking Dead" to class or prohibiting display of the highly regarded Japanese manga about the bombing of Hiroshima.
Hear how some students and their parents are successfully fighting back.  Charles and Barry also explore how comics are often on the cutting edge of social commentary about race, gender and political repression around the globe.
